I'm not sure where to put this.
I'm working on different pens but are slightly confused about the numbering system.
I have a faber castell XS - black
A prismacolor 01 - black
A copic multiliner 05 - black
a copic multiliner sp 0.05 black
Now I doubt the multiliner sp is the same size as the multiliner, but I can't wrap my head around nib sizes...
I mostly do a lot of fine line work, cars and planes, also because I use a higher grade one for punching up my line work and background stuff/details.
Practice on a separate bit of paper first. Problem solved.
this shouldn't be that hard...yea thanks for the advice black spot...(facepalm)
If I'm correct the faber-castell XS = .3mm
can't figure out the rest.
well this is all I found
Pen Size 005 = Point Size 0.20 mm
Pen Size 01 = Point Size 0.25 mm
Pen Size 02 = Point Size 0.30 mm
Pen Size 03 = Point Size 0.35 mm
Pen Size 05 = Point Size 0.45 mm
Pen Size 08 = Point Size 0.50 mm
The multiliner SP translates directly to MM so .03 = .03mm
closes I've gotten with faber-castell is XS = 0.1mm I think not sure
the S is 0.4mm and M is .8mm
Prismacolor I can't find a single bit of info on
Which if this is true faber makes a pen with smaller nib than Micron.
I did check the sites for these.
Prismacolor does not list the size guide at all...
faber castell XS = 0.1mm
while S = 0.4mm
005-.20mm, 01-.25mm, 02-.30mm, 03-.35mm, 05-.45mm, 08-.50mm
While Copic multiliner and sp is exactly eqiv to size. A 0.03 = 0.03mm
